Argentina S-mark safety approval on Switching Power Adapters
The Input voltage in Argentina is AC220V/50Hz, and there are two types of plugs, which are classified into Class I for grounding and Class II for ungrounded.
The plug of the power cord should be verified by IRAM or TUV Argentina S-Mark.
According to the 92/98 resolution that took effect in 1998, Argentina implements S-Mark compulsory certification for electrical and electronic equipment with an input voltage within the range of AC 50-1000 Vac or DC 50-1500 Vdc. The resolution divides the products into 4 groups, which will be implemented step by step from 2001 to August 1, 2004. All products must obtain S-Mark certification before entering the Argentine market.
Argentina is in CB membership, that is, it can be applied through CB, which can save time and expenses of repeated testing and sending samples. In addition, S-Mark certificate will have sampling inspections from the market and annual factory inspections every year, but if CIG 023 factory inspection reports are available, work inspections are not required. Moreover, an annual fee will also be charged every year.
The Argentine government now strictly implements 197/2004, paragraph 7 regulations, so when applying certificates, the following should be paid attention to:
Models with variables are not acceptable. Neither are Commercial code. Only single Model No. without variables are allowed to be listed on the S mark certificate. For issued certificates in the past, the commercial code will be deleted from the Argentine S mark approvals during the next market surveillance inspection or when a new certificate is renewed. The names of the terminal product will be shown at the top of the Argentina certificate, which confirmed with the customer.
